I can't believe this has actually been done. I didn't think our dear old G1 could handle it. Well, according to the vid it does seem laggy, but who cares! It's ICS on G1 =D

Awesome work to the dev and thanks for posting. I'm going to go install it and report back =)

When I heared that Google stated that ICS should be executable on every GB device, I new that someone would do the port for the G1 ... ;) Congrats!

I am quite sure that we will see quite soon a version which will perform more or less like GB on our G1, probably not with all features of ICS.

Just installed it! All I gotta say is WOW!

Wasn't expecting it to actually turn on lol, but it actually works pretty nice. Not lagging as much as I thought it would. The rotation problem isn't that big of a deal for me personally as I usually use my phone in landscape anyway, but I can see how it might be annoying for others.
It scrolls quite smooth through the menus; in the mtd partition i set the cache to 3mb instead of 2..not sure if that the reason for the extra smoothness..???

Quick Question..If I were to increase the cache size, would it run smoother?

Anyway, I'm really impressed with the overall ROM. I still haven't tested out any apps, the phone, messaging...or any of the other things people would use regularly. Will mess around with it a bit more...or maybe a lot =P

I'm so excited haha.
Thanks again for this amazing release!!!
